The help and generosity of our supporters is vital to ensure we can continue using gardening to improve lives. Your support is greatly valued. If you’re interested in getting involved and helping us continue our work there are several areas in which you can help us:

Gardeners:

By working alongside our participans on one of our gardens you’ll provide practical support, help with planning, advice, coaching, and carrying out general garden maintenance repairs. Some knowledge of gardening is preferred but not essential. Work is undertaken in all weathers, so a willingness to work outdoors is essential.

Helping with repairs:

With three large garden sites to maintain, ongoing repairs are essential to the safety of those who attend the group activities. Working as part of a team you will provide practical support including repair to fences and sheds, carrying out risk assessments, and providing advice on health and safety on site.

Administration:

We occasionally have need for administrative support, based in our office, and this can include volunteering for one off events such as Refugee Week, allotment shows, general administration, marketing and PR.

Trustees:

We continue to seek to recruit trustees, particularly with skills in the business and private sector.

Trustees are people who meet every two months with the Project Manager to oversee the running of the Project. They have ultimate responsibility for making sure the charity is well run, is doing what it was set up to do, and is solvent. They also run regular meetings (6-12 monthly) with all the staff to think about the development of the Project and strategy. Trustees have a duty of care to act responsibly and use their skills and experience for the benefit of the Comfrey Project.

We are currently recruiting volunteers for all of the above roles. If you are interested please download and complete a registration form, giving us your details, let us know a bit about yourself and why you would like to volunteer.
